Four Season Sample Set

Same tea plants. Same tea master. Different seasons.

 

Have you ever wondered what each season of Taiwanese high mountain oolong  tastes like? Would you like to understand what people are talking about when they describe the softness of the spring pick, the strength of the fall pick, the crispness of the winter pick or the sweet vegetal notes of the uber rare snow pick? Then this sample pack is for you!

We are pleased and excited to offer a one-of-a-kind sample pack representing a taste of each of the four seasonal picks of our best-selling Pear Mountain Oolong:  25g of the Spring, Fall A and B, Winter picks and Snow Pick from our partner farm located at 2000m above sea level in the famed Lishan tea-growing area of central Taiwan.

Nice sample set

I didn't do a side-to-side comparison, but I drank one tea at one time. Every season has its unique taste (except Fall). Imo Fall A that I received was actually Fall C. My favorite is Winter, then Spring, Snow, then Fall (totally subjective/personal taste). Winter is very smooth, sweet, more floral, a bit vegetal. Spring is more fruity. Snow is not so sweet compared to others and it's super soft (too soft). Both Fall has an astringent finish. The tasting notes from MST is 99% helping me to taste and identify. Sample set from MST is definitely worth it!

Spring idyll

The Spring one has lovely floral (truly Spring) notes with a delicate bitterness towards the end-palate. Highly enjoyable over several steeps!

good tea

I admittedly didnt do a side to side comparison but there didnt seem to be much difference between them drinking one one day and another the next.

Fun to Compare!

I have been learning about tea for about a year now and doing side-by-side comparisons really helps me with my tea education. These Lishan Oolongs were all lovely. From the sweetness of the Spring to the buttery goodness of Fall B and incredible aromatics of the Winter Crisp, each was a special treat.

This Lishan sampler is a steal

$32 for 100 grams of different Lishan seasons was worth it. All of the teas were great quality, and they each had their own distinctions more noticeable than nuanced. The fall harvest was my favorite because it had a spicy cinnamon like edge that the others did not possess as a subtle note. The spring was floral, light, creamy, and immensely sweet like hyacinth and lilies. Like spring, the winter was very soft, but unctous and round in the mouth with green notes amidst more florals. The snow drop was impressive. It started out tasting like sweet corn bread with a clean floral finish, and then became fruitier as it rebrewed. All four teas had different degrees kinds of florals, viscous textures, and stone fruit notes in the layer steeps. I was very impressed with this first order, and cannot recommend it enough for any growing or experienced tea lover.
